I want to say I had a good weekend. I passed my test with my highest score yet, but of course where theres good, theres bad.. Trouble in paradise. My boyfrend decided he cant handle my dog anymore and told me in text form while I was out of town.. When I got home that night, I was reassured that we would not break up over a dog. The next morning I leave with a smile on my face and get to work.. As the day is winding down to an end, I receive another dramatc text from him, leaving me more worried than before.. An argument arises and im given a choice between him or my dog, lexi. By this time I am on my way home anyway and am in tears because a dog is going to end my relationship. I get home, he leaves, still arguing thru text and then we are broken up.. I was hysterical, crying and blubbering alone.. Well, not totally alone. Lexi, the dog he hates, sat and slept next to me on the bathroom floor as the tears stream down my face.. Thankfully, he returns. I become hysterical again yelling, crying, pleading.. He said he loves me and wont leave me again.. I want to believe him so bad, but I have been hurt, used, abused, and tossed to the side so many times before.. The fact that he left me at all makes me extremely scared and flairs my anxiety. I woke up last night thinking he was gone.. This mroning almost led into another fight because lexi peed on the side of my bed he normally sleeps on.. She is scared of him and his friend, so I didnt spank her like I normally would. If I hit her, shell just get more scared and pee more. He doesnt seem to understand or care.. He doesnt even want to live with me anymore.. I also doubt hes going to want to marry me.. I just dont know what to do..

The Hunter: Me - The Prey: a Job

I've been hard at work searching and hunting for a new job with no such luck. I got a call today from one of the temp agencies in town for a call center job, but because I have my modeling classes on Saturdays I was told it wouldn't work out. Part of me is greatly disappointed; I need a job! The other part of me is relieved. I've been down that call center/ marketing road before and that is one path I do not want to revisit.

I've also re-created my resume. I'm hoping, with the pointers I got from one of my instructors, I will have better luck. I changed the look of it and added some "specials interests" and "hobbies". I'm not really sure why I put those in quotation marks...

Anyway, I'm posting my resume on my blog hoping that someone, somewhere out there will stumble upon it and realize I am just the person he or she is looking for.. I left off my references, naturally, so weirdos won't call them. I don't want to put people through a stalker situation.

the month of march...

If my life isn't just one gigantic roller coaster...

I got fired from my job a month ago, which initially was ok. I hated that job and have been enjoying the time off. DUring my period of unemployment I've been living life and having fun.

For a short while, I became an unlicensed massage therapist. That didn't last long. I was getting tired of the pervs requesting "happy endings". I failed my algebra class, putting a stop to my hopes of enrolling in the Radiology program and moving to Nashville this year, so I am now attending modeling and acting school! What a trade off, huh?

My love life has been, well... I dated a special forces guy for a while, but he did not want anything serious. I started seeing both a doctor and an IT guy for a bit, but neither of those worked out either. Then, out of no where I meet a soldier online and things couldn't be better. It has only been a couple of weeks, but things are going quite swimmingly. He has claimed me as his girlfriend, and like me, he doesn't believe in wasting time. I'm loving it.

Currently I am at the bottom of my money barrel, so I am desperately seeking employment. I just finished some assessment for a temp agency; trying to reach them now before I go in for whatever I am suppose to go see them about. I'm also waiting on a call from a pet store and I'm on the hunt for a mysterious day care center over by the hospital.

I am also trying to come up with a new name for my website. I dont suppose I'll be selling items anymore, but I do like the idea of having my own little space in the cyberworld. Yea, I have a few followers on twitter and facebook, but I want something I can call my very own.

Hopefully, when I update again (whenever that will be), I'll have something awesome to say. I hate talking about all the negative things in my universe. I do enjoy the occassional happy and inspirational moments that occur over a lifetime.
